Senator Udall’s remarks regarding the

Niobrara Energy Park:


“…ahead of the curve.”


“…a beautiful confluence” of new economic
opportunities for Northern Colorado.


“What’s exciting about this is the job
creation potential.”


“How can I help?”

distributes power throughout the park.

Result: a stable, secure, remote
location for a Federal or private

HOW IT WILL WORK:

Green energy development coupled with
firm clean gas energy provides
uninterruptable power to the micro

Power Creation Component

Alternative and Renewable Energy


Clean Fossil Fuel


Natural gas power plant using new gas from the Niobrara and existing gas from the Cheyenne Hub


(5 to 7% of USA gas on daily basis)


Benefits:


Provides micro grid for redundancy energy supply for Data Center


Firms in
-
Park solar and other alternatives


Firms upstream supplies such as wind and hydro


Provides peaking power to the grid


Can provide new load to grid


Provides energy for emergency blackouts


Provides new energy source for Niobrara pump jacks


Provides grid and voltage reliability



Solar


Park is zoned for up to 50 megawatt solar farm


Solar can be “firmed” with natural gas plant


Solar could provide green energy to Data Centers


Other Alternative Energies


Park is zoned for a multitude of other energy creation such as fuel cell and micro wind

Economic Development


Leverages the economic impact of the Niobrara:


With a Data Center, expenditures in the Park


could exceed $3 billion


Target permanent new job growth of 150 to 200 jobs


Construction jobs could exceed 1500 with the Data Center


Support letters received:


Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade


Upstate Colorado Economic Development


Northern Colorado Economic Development Corporation

Data Center Component


Trends


Major construction by both government and private industry


Core growth is drawing additional, lower
-
cost locations


Consolidation is also due to functional obsolescence


(Data Centers over 7 years old)


Drive is toward larger, more secure, greener and more energy
efficient sites


Colorado has perfect “outside” cool air and humidity to help
reduce 30% of Data Center energy needs
